(West Fargo, ND) -- First Avenue East will close beginning Monday, July 11th, between 5th Street East and 6th Street East for concrete repairs due to road buckling.

Road buckling commonly occurs when the air temperature shifts from moderate to extreme heat. The warmer the temperature, the more the pavement material expands and leads to buckles. 

Repairs are anticipated to be complete by Monday, July 25th pending weather conditions.

If motorists encounter a buckling road, please notify the Public Works Department at (701) 515-5400.
